FEATURING CRISTINA LÓPEZ G. – President Donald Trump on Thursday gathered at the White House a who’s-who of online right-wing extremist agitators in a high-profile “social media summit.” The problem is that none of the people invited actually run social media platforms. Most, if not all, have complained about the censorship of their hate-filled views.
President Trump explained – on Twitter – that the topic of the summit would be, “the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies.” He added ominously, “We will not let them get away with it much longer.”
